The Easirent Gatwick Airport Car Hire branch think the idea by an airline at the airport is quite a good idea to give new musical talent a chance from different parts of Europe.
Some of the short-haul destinations at Gatwick Airport are the chosen destinations as an unlikely inspiration behind a range of acts for this year’s Isle of Wight Music Festival. This has come about because British Airways (BA) is providing a stage at the iconic music festival for emerging talent this year.
It will give new talent the chance to play to crowds of up to 55,000 and the acts have been chosen by BA to represent some of the short-haul destinations the airline flies at Gatwick Airport. Artists from Spain, France, Italy and Croatia as well as the UK will be represented.
Colm Lacy, British Airways’ head of commercial at Gatwick Airport, said “We have many loyal customers attending the Isle of Wight festival who fly with us each year, and the #BAmusic stage will give them the chance to see and enjoy exciting new talent from destinations across our network. We hope to see the artists we are showcasing flying with us in a few years, playing to crowds around the world.”
A BA spokesman said: “British Airways staff will also be on hand with essential items to help keep everyone refreshed and feeling great. Visitors to the #BAmusic stage and readers of Time Out magazine will also be given the opportunity to win tickets to see the acts performing in their own country and explore their local music scenes later on in the year.”
